I see alot of people saying it flopped or how it was their worst album, but the more i listen the more i like it. Selfish, the two of us, do your thing, gone, girlfriend. they're all really good songs.
I'm a die hard *NSYNC fan and I'll admit that off-the-bat, I did not like this album. I had been picking and choosing from the more popular songs and would skim over the others. Once I actually took a listen, though, this album is FULL of great songs. You just have to give them a chance and listen through them. I promise that you will not be disappointed.
I was given this album years ago and went through it just because i'm going through all my music and writing reviews of the albums. None of their albums were very impressive, but this is clearly the weakest. There's nothing genuine here. Some of the songs sound pleasant with occasionally competent vocal haromonies, but most of it's too empty to keep on my IPod. There's just no connection between the singers and the songs and it shows. Unlike Rock and Folk and even, sadly, Country artists there's none of them in these songs. And given how shiny and produced it all is, if this is reprensentative of who they actually are, they aren't much emotionally and it's pretty sad. After being handpicked and artificially put together, it's like "Here's the artificial music made entirely of computer generated sounds programmed (not played and written) by someone else and lyrics that you didn't write and we'll touch up your vocals so you don't even have to work too hard to sing and all you have to do is have pretty hair. Oh wait, here's a professional stylist so you don't even have to worry about that. You just have to keep the teen girls swooning, that's all and you can call yourself a musician for that." Their existence and their contemporaries existence marked the beginning of musical prostitution in that they would lower themselves and their integrity as "musicians" for fame and riches and let others decide every single facet of their careers based on marketability. Even their live shows don't feature live vocals. How could they? It's hard to sing that clearly when you're hopping around in syncronized dance stupidity. Seriously, have you ever actually looked at them dancing on stage? Absolutely hilarious. Like trained monkeys. So millions of shallow teenage girls paid through the nose to go to a concert and watch famous people dance to a tape recording of their songs. That's a lot of money just to watch people dance badly for you. It was cheerleaders watching 5 boys do cheerleader routines to music that they (sort of) recorded. Timberlake's vocals are awful and you can hear it on this album. What's his appeal musically? He sings like a nasally girl. Even if he could sing, it would still be these sad and trite excuse for lyrics. Pop is just an awful song. One of my biggest pet peeves in music (other than back-up singers) is boy bands singing about their feelings as a collective group - especially when then sing about, or to, their fans. It's like a standard concept for these groups. The just love telling fans that they are the meaning of their lives and they're back again for them and all that schlock. I don't care how you claim to feel about your fans. Talk about unrelatable lyrics. But since they aren't actually doing or singing anything real anyway, i guess relatability doesnt matter anyway.
This album is not as good as "No Strings Attached", but it's still not that bad. It has some pretty good songs like: "Pop", "The Game Is Over", "Girlfriend", "The Two of Us" and "Gone", which is in my opinion Justin's best solo. Still got love 4 *NSYNC
I used to listen to this album as a kid and I always liked Backstreet Boys. Now I can't even believe I used to listen to this crap. Anyways Justin was always my favorite. FYI BACKSTREET BOYS NEVER BROKE UP! I can't believe I used to own almost everything of them. WHO EVEN CARES!
Both NSYNC and BSB had their hits that everyone loved. But when it comes to album-fillers, I think BSB's were a little more listenable. I can listen to a BSB album from start to finish.
I'll agree this wasn't their best album, but it most definately was NOT bad. it was pretty amazing even though it wasn't their best. Besides, compared to today's music its like unbelievably awsome lol. I really miss them
I miss this music so much when i was younger i would only listen to the good pop 90's music!! I wish that all the singers from the 90's would come back and do an album for their fans!! I miss listening to these guys and just listening right now is making me soo happy!!!
This is one of nsyncs best albums I just cannot believe this was their last I was waiting for a follow up but instead we got jts justified instead the following year which meant the end of a pop era sadly it was bye bye bye nsync hi hi hi cocky think he knows it all clever jt
I loved this song and knew the dance routine by heart. Yes I'm a guy that could do the dance and did it at school dances. Chicks loved it and I got all the attention. This takes me back and NSYNC will always be one of the best pop bands of all time. They had much better lyrics than BSB and better melodies. They're still relavent to this day which is rare for a boyband.
Ah the days before mp3 and smart phones. Listening to the lyrics I now realize how cheesy this music was, but it's still better than a lot of this new crap that's coming out. Still has that great sound I loved
Wo this is great the the the best!!!! I sing and dance to them they rock my top five are 1.pop 2.gone 3.i wish bye bye bye was on here but it's just don't tell me that 4.tell me tell me baby 5.two of us!! But it ain't no lie baby bye bye bye!! LoL
with all the other reviews on here. i dont care what anyone says every single song from each of their cds from their debut to nsa to celebrity and greatest hits including remixes and solos like 2 of justins cds from justified down to his futuresex/lovesounds cd and jcs which i think he should get going on releasing his 2nd one which he promised. but oh well. i like everything that involves nsync. even rare songs that i heard on the radio back in the day. lol but i woud say nsync is my number one group still as of today. bye bye bye and pop im out. (pop=bubble popping thats all i need to say) lol
All the songs are really catchy and they'll be stuck in your head all day. The top five are: 1. See Right Through You 2. Do Your Thing 3. Up Against the Wall 4. Just Don't Tell Me That 5. Pop/ Gone/ Celebrity/ Something Like You I guess that's the top 8, I couldn't decide on one. You know what... just buy the whole album, if you like N'sync, it's worth it. I love u nsync and Justin!!!
